  • A Bad Press

    Below is a link to the kind of story which can be harmful to nudism:

    Man sentenced over child abuse ring

    A North Yorkshire children's outdoor activity centre manager who pretended to be a woman in order to be accepted as a member of a nudist website which encouraged child abuse has been jailed for four years....

    The trial heard that the ring used a nudist website as a cover for their perversions.
    http://www.whitbygazette.co.uk/news/...ring_1_4170197

    Of course, the members of this "ring" are no more nudists than I am and they used nudism as a front for their disgusting activities. This, however, is one of the examples of how the public can associate nudism with sexual activities. Even as far back as the 1930s, the early "grindhouse" movie makers latched on to nudism as a way of getting around censorship laws and showing nubile young women naked for the prurient interest of audiences. Nowadays, people have access to adult films and even many mainstream cinemas show quite graphic sex, so the simple images of naked young people playing beach volleyball have lost their effect. Instead, a rather seedy sex industry is throwing the word "nudist" around as a euphemism for "sex" and "swinging" and some paedophiles are using it as cover, as in this story.

    That's not fair and, when it happens, I think the press should be required to contact legitimate nudist groups and obtain a statement from their representatives to emphasise that this kind of behaviour has nothing to do with genuine nudism and is utterly abhorrent to all genuine nudists.

    Thanks, Stu. You understand what nudism is and what it isn't.

    Google for "nudism". What you get? Porn!

      Really? This is the 2nd site ( http://naturizam.tumblr.com/ ) that came up when I googled nudism. The first was Wiki.

      Doesn't look so pornographic to me.

        Though I can imagine porn cropping up as you go along the search engine. But then again, it seems the more websites you pass along the way, the less relevant they get to your criteria.
